Peter! Another fantastic write up! Thank you for sharing
Dave - sorry, it was getting late and we had to hammer it home.Right thru my neighborhood and you didn't knock on my door. Nice documentation and Rex Maughan was our next-door neighbor when I was in high school. He has come a long way since then.
Fantastic write up of what must have been a great trip. Among many beautiful photos, #2 in post 14 is awesome. And is that a Leica in hand in the the second photo in post 2? If so, it probably belongs in the Very Best thread, although the most important tool for a photographer is between the ears.
Thanks for a great read.
Funny you should mention it. On most trips, I fret over my truck's behavior- listen to all noises, and whatnot. When we went to Baja California last year, I detected a rattling noise from the engine, and was obsessed with it for a while.Great read and totally impressed that you didn’t have any break downs.
Chris, let's be realisticPeter has a thing for cheap Chinese stereos and ham radios. You can get a Pioneer head unit online for $100 (or Facebook Marketplace for $20) that will work every time, with easy to use menus, or a you can buy a Chinese-made Chachacha brand stereo designed for Tijuana taxi drivers that has an extremely bright LED backlight that cycles through the rainbow (and cannot be disabled) and the most indecipherable, inflexible, and useless user interface for $80 and Peter will buy the Chachacha brand every time.
